I think we should have a national referendum on the issue and let the Canadian public decide if they want to keep the monarchy after the Queen passes on. Ideally there should be several options.

Do you just have a massive hard on to waste taxpayer money? Multiple options on a binary question? Holy hell man...

I just think it should be up to the people of Canada to decide this and not some politicians deciding. There can be many forms of government, having a monarchy or not are not the only two options.

Think that one through a little bit amd ask yourself if it might be a good idea to let somebody who is NOT the Prime Minister to hire that guy.
you are either trolling for fun or really really stupid. I am not arguing with you any more.

No referendum, please.

It is not a major decision that affects Canada's future or peoples' lives. Just do nothing, or let the politicians decide.

A referendum just looks democratic, and stop wasting everyone's time.

No, I'm serious. You just don't see the issue, at all. You're completely lost.

Sorry but deciding what form the Canadian government should take is not a trivial matter. You are basically redesigning the Canadian government. That is why I think a referendum is a way to go. Politicians can handle the smaller and day to day stuff.

I'm wondering how much it would cost for a total revamping of our government.
IMO the system in place works well enough and doesnt need a make over.
